Even though blink-182’s Australian tours included conflicting concerts in Sydney, they nevertheless made sure to support Taylor Swift.


Here, there is no ill will! Taylor Swift and Mark Hoppus of blink 182 pose during their respective Sydney gigs...
The American pop-punk band and the global megastar, 34, both performed at neighbouring shows in Sydney in a scheduling clash last Friday and Saturday night.

While Taylor took to the stage at the Accor Stadium for her first two of four shows, blink-182 performed just next door at the Qudos Bank Arena.

Mark Hoppus briefly nipped over to the Accor Stadium as he trolled Swifties as they entered the venue, but he has since proven there is no bad blood between them.

He took to Instagram to share snaps of himself posing backstage with Taylor at her concert, while Tom DeLonge also attended Taylor’s Sunday show.

But Travis Barker did not appear to have attended any of her shows, amid Taylor’s long-running feud with his wife Kourtney Kardashian’s sister Kim.

Kourtney has previously weighed in and firmly sided with her sister when the dispute first kicked off over Kanye West’s 2016 song including vulgar lyrics about the star.

However, blink-182’s Mark and Tom proved there was no tension as they both took to social media to gush over Taylor amid her sell-out Sydney Eras tour concerts.

Despite their clashing shows, the pair both took the time to support Taylor while they were all in the same city, and shared snaps to Instagram from the occasion.

Mark, 51, shared a selfie of himself and his wife Skye Everly grinning for a snap with Taylor, who was dressed in her on-stage glitzy gold leotard, backstage.

The trio also all wrapped their arms around each other as they smiled for the cameras, with Taylor looking ready to go on stage in her sparkling outfit.

Last week, Tom had headed over to the Accor Stadium to jokingly troll Swifties for not attending blink-182’s concert next door instead.

In the video, shared to Instagram, the punk rocker said: ‘I’m about to go on stage and I’m really disappointed in everybody here because this is the Taylor Swift show.’

He then filmed some of Taylor’s fans as he playfully called out to them: ‘You should have gone to see Blink! Could’ve seen Blink 182 tonight. Just saying.’

Many Swifties did not notice Mark, but the few that did looked perplexed or amused by his outburst.

Meanwhile, his bandmate Tom, 48, took to Instagram to reveal that he had been in the crowds at Taylor’s Eras show on Sunday – after blink-182’s Sydney gigs came to a close on Saturday night.

He shared a snap of himself posing with comedian Rebel Wilson as they stood in the crowds ahead of the concert, with Tom showing his support for her Eras tour – which wrapped up in Australia on Monday night.

Ahead of their shows kicking off, Mark also took to Instagram to share a playful post of himself and Tom grinning alongside Taylor in an edited snap, though Travis wasn’t featured.

With the Sydney Opera House superimposed in the background, they joked in a caption of their clashing shows: ‘We are definitely definitely definitely getting back together.’

blink-182 have previously covered Taylor’s smash hit We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together, putting their own punk spin on the pop anthem.

Taylor recently reignited her feud with Kardashians star Kim as she slammed her for ‘taking her down psychologically’ in a TIME interview in December.

Their long-running feud started when Kim’s then-husband Kanye West wrote a 2016 song to include vulgar lyrics about the rising star.

That took me down psychologically to a place I’ve never been before. I moved to a foreign country. I didn’t leave a rental house for a year. I was afraid to get on phone calls.’

During that period, she all but vanished from the public eye, something that she says came as a result of the Kardashian and West fallout.

‘I pushed away most people in my life because I didn’t trust anyone anymore. I went down really, really hard.’
